    Are we talking course or city (or both) because I don't think you can generalise and say one city or course is better than the other. We are all individuals.

    What are you actually looking for location and course-wise?

    Well ~~As I have never been to UK before,so ,I just can get the informtion from the website or the limited news from other chinese who may be there before.However,I believe the suggestions from local people (I mean,people in UK) will be more worthy...

    Pls kindly analysis from not only academic aspect but the city itself ....Which one is better then?For another hand,I guess I will want to find some part time job ...as the fee for the internation students are really high....

    Thanks:-)))

    Forgive me, I couldn't put Aberdeen as my insurance.

    But Edinburgh isn't such a bad place to go. Besides I'm so poor at applied Mathematics that I'll probably end up going to my insurance (Glasgow) anyway.

    Honestly, they're both as good as each other for international students. Glasgow attracted students from over 120 countries last year. Although they do have a sizable local community.

    Well both are great, vibrant cities and both universities are strong all rounders.

    City wise then Glasgow is the larger of the two but both are major cities imo with great nightlife and culture. Both are probably the most friendly and welcoming cities in the country.

    Cost of living wise then Newcastle is slightly cheaper, I think.

    Wrong, and wrong again.

    The Glaswegians are far more friendly than the Geordies.

    Glasgow is the cheapest.

    I bought a huge carrot cake for only 30p in Glasgow. :eek4:

    Take River's advice with a pinch of salt.

    As for Essex, it's not as good as Glasgow or Newcastle.

    well I went to newcastle uni as a international student having never been to the uk before..and i hated it So i'd say go to glasgow! but then again I was used to big mega cities and found myself suddenly cramped the mini town that newcastle is. However, I can see why students find it great. Lots of cheap bars and the international community is not bad!

    Right.....because all you need in life is carrot cakes.

    No, I think your advice should be questioned :yep:

    I think the OP is able to chose which of the two to belive. I'm the one who's a member of the moderation team (and with the greater rep :p: )

    About Essex, it's still a good university. I don't really know a great deal about it other than basic knowledge of its history and the excellent research its politics department produces. I don't know much about its business programmes.
